I have not kept with the current status but as far as I know exfat support is still limited vs NTFS. I do not understand why you say not to use it?

Pertaining to this thread it is best to use a linux file system vs FAT or NTFS.

exfat is still a PITA on 90 of Linux systems in my experience. NTFS support is going to be much easier to find, I'm not sure why pan64 is saying not to use it.

ntfs is much more complex and therefore probably not fully supported. (If you want a general solution use a simple one). And if I know it well it works definitely slower on an usb stick.
